Wasted LED watch from Tokyoflash
Telling the time used to be something that’s pleasant and easy to do – all you needed was a quick glance at your wrist and you’re good to go. The folks over at Tokyoflash have certainly gone out of their way to complicate things as much as possible, and one of the results would be the Wasted LED watch. Also known as the Kisai Wasted, it will come in two color styles – black and white. Wasted boasts a streamlined plastic case and strap finished in gloss with matte detail.
It was specially designed to fit most wrist sizes perfectly, boasting a smooth translucent lens which enables you to see the mysterious layout of time right under it. Since it is USB rechargeable, you need not go out and buy those button cell batteries. It takes around 3.5 hours for a full charge which should last you for around one month on average. With the battery being able to hold around 300 charges, that would translate to over 2 years of use before you replace the battery.
How do you tell the time? That is the easy part once you get the hang of it, although your friends might beg to differ as they crack their brains, looking for various methods in unlocking the “code” or pattern. The Kisai Wasted makes it a snap with its explanation – all you need to do is touch the button for the twisted display to come to life, where the current time will flash for a short time in order to direct you. All hours are shown on the outside in the same position as the corresponding numbers on a clock, while groups of five minutes on the inside will also show up with single minutes in the center from bottom to top.
You can also initiate a programmed animation between 18:00 and 24:00 for night time, where all lights will slowly illuminate the screen and then go out every 15 minutes when animation mode is on. The price to pay? $85.09 sans shipping if you’re interested.
